Meet Kahlua. She reminds me of a coffee bean for reasons unknown. Maybe it's her eyes?
Referencing from my PREVIOUS POST, her broken head has now been glued together. I didn't bother gluing the head cap, where her original hair would have been, in case I wanted to do something with it in the future. She didn't come with hair when she was given to me so I had to pull a hair donation from another unwanted doll. I didn't glue the wig on either. My coworker had pictured her as a bald cancer patient doll so I had to give the doll an option of being bald in her own time.
Her dress is original to her, now looking brand-spanking new, thanks to OxiClean and some laundry detergent. I tried not to rub it too much as I was washing it so it wouldn't be so wrinkly. It seems the front of it originally had buttons so I will have to find some vintage ones to sew on it one of these days.

After I pieced Kahlua's head together and put a wig on her, I was quickly reminded of a wooden frame that my mom gave to me as a child.
I've had this frame for the longest time. Always loved it because of that sitting doll but never actually had it displayed since I couldn't find the right wall for it. So I dug it up the other day to compare to Kahlua...
In the end, I really enjoyed restoring this doll to a semi-glorious state. Though barely visible with a wig on, Kahlua will always have her battle scars but, hey, she found her way home!
